I honestly decided to leave a review because i know there are others experiencing issues similar to me. I came to Uptown & saw Josie off of a site called styleseat.com. i had recently been tooken advantage of by 3girls&aneedle hair/service and wasnt sure who to trust. But simply by grace & mercy, i was led to Josie & had a wonderful experience. I got a full sewn in w/ closure using true indian hair (she believes in recommending quality vendors & not just trying to get over with bad batches). Pricey...yes...but worth it due to the quality of hair ordered (2 bundles & closure $315...will review hair as well) & she died bundles & installed for $250. She also cut layers into the beautifully dyed blk with subtle burgundy highlights (1st time trying color...was nervous...but came out great). Additionally, they were friendly, enjoyed gospel music in background (which i truly appreciated but later R&b was played), was not loud/ghetto/cursing going on...just really a cool environment. This is a real & true review by a female fed with Atlanta's abundance of hair vendors & stylist out here trying to collect on our hard earned money! Im DEFINITELY returning!

I did my research before flying into Atlanta GA from California and I was in need of a serious stylist that knows how to transform people into stars. I actually followed Beautii J's career history on you tubes and blogs which shows a lot from the fashion world, products, entertainment, hair and now educating up and coming stylist. I really wanted a master educator a women of her master craft in my hair. Beautii listened as to what my needs where and added a few suggestion and assist me in selecting the best Indian Hair that matches my natural hair as possible. When my weave was done, I felt and look like a mega star and I must say Beautii has turned my life around because I was picked for a role that is currently view on T.V. now. The staff is so friendly and nice. The staff work is superior as well, I have not seen any client leave unhappy. The shop appearance has a European decor that relaxes your mind. Rest assurance, I am pleased and I have found my long term stylist that not only services my weaves at the shop she also hooks me up on set.Thanks Beautii J...
We arrived at a little after 7pm in a Friday night. The place was busy but not ridiculously crowded. We were seated right away. The music was nice (from Bruno Mars to Janet Jackson) The service was outstanding! Justin, our server, thought we waited too long for our ramen. It didn't seem long to us as we were busy digging in on the delicious appetizers of Japanese fried chicken (yum) and braised pork belly (omg yum). Next thing we knew, Justin came over and told us he discounted part of our meal and apologized for the wait and then the manager brought us MORE complimentary pork belly! Seriously, we didn't think the wait was long at all! The appetizers were plenty for 2 of us. We ordered the mild curry ramen (a bit on the spicy side) and the spicy Wasabi ramen with shrimp added. Both were very tasty! The curry was spicier than I expected, but the curry flavors were spot on. We will definitely come back and I will recommend this place to my friends for sure!
This is a beautiful salon. It is decorated very nicely. I love my stylist which I followed from another salon. My last visit however was disappointing, not because of anything my stylist did but moreso how myself and the person that was with me were treated when we arrived. I can understand that the owner would like to keep her salon nice but not allowing a paying customer to bring anyone along for an appointment is bad business. My guest, who is also a client of my stylist was turned away at the door because she was not being serviced that particular day. We drove an hour and fifteen minutes only to not feel welcomed at the salon upon arrival. This was a complete turnoff. I can understand not allowing children in the salon unless they are being serviced. I can even understand not allowing more than one person to accompany a person with an appointment, but a person that is an actual client turned away at the door.... humm. I can see why the salon is empty.
Sonya was nice, the shop was decent, but my problem was that they up-charged me from what Fatima quoted on the phone. And every time myself or another customer asked for the price of something they had to talk amongst themselves in a foreign language and Fatima (owner) decided on the price. I'm like how do you have to discuss the price for something!!! The prices should be set. So led me to believe they changed the prices based on the traffic flow for the day. And it was empty. I also requested to have my ends clipped & after Sonya had play time cutting in my hair Fatima came and I guess did it correctly w/a small tooth comb on natural hair! Hair 101 No No! I wish I could say I would recommended someone here but I would not. I looked at their hair books and most pics were dated & magazine tear-out pics instead of their actual work. So It wasn't a horrible experience, but I was not satisfied.
Everyone here is so sweet and welcoming. They all work in a family type of setting, where each stylist learns and has the same capabilities for various hair services. Before starting my service, Staren, my stylist, showed me around the salon, and provided me with a clean black robe. Upon returning to her booth, she inquired what I wanted my final look to be and the amount of length I would be comfortable with. After the relaxing shampoo massage, she went to work. Other friendly stylist came over and watched as she transformed my long locks into a super cute trendy short, long bobb. Although I told myself I did not need any more hair products, I could not help but get some of the amazing Orbe products that made my fine, thin hair bouncy and full without feeling crunchy and hard. FYI...It's now 11 hours later from when I had my hair done,and it still looks bouncy, soft, and full.
Jason is the BEST...Better than any stylist I have ever had before! (& I've definitely been around :)Experienced: Jason has been doing hair for a long time...he is fun, knowledgeable, & confident.Sweet: He knows how to treat a lady...he is courteous, professional, & a total joy to be around.Talented: He knows how to cut, how to color, how to style, & how to recommend products.Urban Evolution is a beautiful, refreshing space with lively personalities (not pretentious AT ALL) and aesthetically-pleasing decor. Atlanta's salon scene is super-saturated (which made it extremely difficult to find one that I love and will go back to time and again), but UE is one in a zillion!!! I feel so lucky to have found Jason at Urban Evolution, and I will NEVER go to anyone else as long as I live!!!! #IamLoyal2Jason4evr

This was the best eyebrow service I ever received. My eyebrow stylist, Noreen, did an outstanding job. I told her that I like my eyebrows to have a definition shape. This means I like the temple area of my brow to my lower eyelids more thinner than the rest of the brow. This angle shape give shape gives the definition. Plus, Noreen gave me a consultation on which brow product to use. Those with thicker eyebrows should use the powder while those with thinner brows should use the pencil. After my service, I went to the store. I received about three compliments on my brows, by which, I directed them to this eyebrow salon and told them about Noreen. I recommend everyone woman come and see her for their eyebrow needs.
I love this salon and my stylist Gynesis. The time that I contacted her she walked me through the process of getting a protective style "GBraids". I was so impressed and her consultation is online talking about technology has changed so much and we video conference my hair analysis. Gynesis loves to do hair early so we schedule 4am and that did not brother me since I am an early bird as well, so I was done in time to go to work. I was so happy and everyone loved my hair and could not believe I had it done prior to work because of how small and undetectable my braids was. It looks just like a sew-in. Gynesis has a customer for life. I have been Spoiled.
